No offense to you OP but I am so sick of people making a big deal out of people eating meat, whether its, beef, chicken, goat, fish, turtle, squirrel,
or anything else.
Let me ask you OP, is it wrong for a lion on the plains of Africa to chase down a Gazelle and eat it?
The reason I ask is because the lion is an Apex Predator and that is the food that it is meant to eat. We as humans are the highest Apex Predators on
the planet and all plants and animals are here for or consumption and sustenance. This is true regardless of whether you believe in evolution or
religion, we have evolved to be, or were made to be at the top of the food chain.
The problem is that we have been so degraded by "society" and "civilization" to be weak minded and not accept the fact that in order for us to
live something must die, even plants......just as is the case with the lion and gazelle. Through decades of social programming most people have come
to think subconsciously that meat comes from the grocery store.
As Faust100f said it is a delicacy in Japan and I have ate horse on several occasions when I was in Japan and other countries that serve it on the
menu, it is quite tasty and shares about the same nutritional value as beef. Personally I don't care what it is when I'm hungry because I have a an
understanding that this is the way that the circle of life works.
This morning I went fishing and caught some trout for dinner then when I got home I rang one of our pheasants neck and cleaned them all for dinner.
After I was done I got some cabbage that we had grown to go along with it. Now tell me why is killing that trout or pheasant any more bad than killing
that cabbage plant, does that trout or pheasant have a greater right to life than that head of cabbage?
